Beautiful sparkling wine from the north center of Italy. It is a blend of 75% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Bianco, and 15% Pinot Nero. Light golden in color with a steady stream of tiny bubbles. The nose has red apples, minerals and slight toast. Full bodied. On the palate, this has a slight oxidative note along with apples and slight toast. A nice backbone of acidity. Long finish. This drinks great on its own but will work well with a wide variety of food. Everything from popcorn to fried, spicy chicken. Long finish. It will compete with everything in its price category from Champagne. Drink over the next five to eight years.
